Posters, cards advertise drinking, driving change

In order to raise awareness of new drinking and driving “warn range” sanctions coming into effect on May 1, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation will distribute bilingual information cards and posters (see below) through Service Ontario.

Beginning on May 1, 2009, drivers whose blood alcohol concentration registers from .05 to .08 on a roadside breath test will lose their driver’s licences for three to 30 days. Drivers caught more than once face mandatory alcohol education programs and ignition interlock.

For more information, contact the Ministry’s Lenni Eubanks at 416-235-5118 or lenni.eubanks@ontario.ca .
